Biogeochemistry of the Bay of Bengal: Physical, chemical and primary productivity characteristics of the central and western Bay of Bengal during summer monsoon 2001
Reliable data on biological characteristics from the Bay of Bengal are elusive. In this paper, we present results on physics, chemistry and biology simultaneously measured during the summer monsoon, 2001 from open ocean ...
Preponderance of a few diatom species among the highly diverse microphytoplankton assemblages in the Bay of Bengal
The microphytoplankton assemblages were studied from water samples collected at eight discrete depths in the top 120 m at five central [open ocean] and four western [shelf/slope region] locations in the Bay of Bengal. The ...
Strong variability in bacterioplankton abundance and production in central and western Bay of Bengal
With large influx of freshwater that decreases sea-surface salinities, weak wind forcing of less than 10 m s sup (-1) and almost always warm (greater than 28 degrees C) sea-surface temperature that stratifies and shallows ...
Is the biological productivity in the Bay of Bengal light limited?
(Current Science Association, 2010)
Recent measurements of chlorophyll, primary productivity (PP) and nutrients along the central Bay of Bengal (BOB) during summer, fall and spring intermonsoons showed that the northern bay becomes less productive compared ...
Are eddies nature’s trigger to enhance biological productivity in the Bay of Bengal?
(American Geophysical Union, 2004)
The Bay of Bengal is traditionally considered to be a less productive basin compared to the Arabian Sea. Despite the contrasting chlorophyll and primary productivity pattern, sediment trap data shows that annual fluxes of ...
Spatial variations of DMS, DMSP and phytoplankton in the Bay of Bengal during the summer monsoon 2001
Data on the distribution of Dimethylsulphide (DMS) and dimethylsulphoniopropionate (DMSP) in relation to phytoplankton abundance in different oceanic environments is important to understand the biogeochemistry of DMS, which ...
